The Duke of Edinburgh Award is a very highly regarded achievement and is a significant enhancement to student resumes, particularly for students seeking entry to highly competitive courses such as Medicine.

King David encourages and facilitates students taking up this valuable course at any of the three levels, Bronze, Silver or Gold.

There are four mandatory sections to the Award:

  • Physical Reaction
  • Skills
  • Volunteering
  • Adventurous Journey

The activities that abound at KDS including sport coaching, fitness, instrumental and/or vocal ensembles, umpiring, mentoring and many others make the attainment of the Award an accessible goal.
